REPUBLIC OF ARMENIA
Armenia is affected by landmines, primarily as a result of the conflict between Nagorni Katabakh and Azerbaijan in 1988-1994. After the 1994 cease-fire following the conflict Armenian army surveyed approximately 1,000 kilometres of borderline in Armenia. In 2012-2013 Swiss Foundation for Mine Action (FSD) by the financial support of US Office for Weapons Removal And Abatement (PM/WRA) and close cooperation with CHDE implemented Non-Technical survey. The survey identified that contamination with landmines and / or UXO exists in four out of eleven regions of Armenia.   The contaminated regions are as follows: Tavoush, Gegharkunik, Vayots Dzor, and Syunik. Ararat Marz was also surveyed as there was an indication of landmine- and UXO impact, but  no  evidence  was  found  to  support  this.  A  total  number  of  42  impacted  communities  were identified with a total of 131 Suspected and Confirmed Hazardous Areas and 34,723  people being impacted.  The breakdown among the regions is provided below:
